that is, that would end up being the largest tax increase in the mystery of america on the american people -- if you're not going to do it through legislation, we'll do it through our regulations through the environmental protection agency. and so there was an endangerment finding. the administrator of the e.p.a. had the endangerment finding, and it was based on the ipcc flawed science. nonetheless, it was there. and so they started on a route to regulate co2 through regulations. let's stop and think about what that would be. the cost that we have determined over a period of ten years now to take over the regulation and have -- tph-fbgs a type of cap-and-trade -- in fact a type of cap-and-trade through regulation would be about $300 billion to $400 billion a year. i estimated what that would cost an average family in oklahoma. it was about $3,000 for each family that pays, that actually files a tax return. you have to ask the question: what you get if you pass this. first of all, i think most of the people right now are concerned with the price of gasoline at the pump. it's going up again.
about tightening the belt, but nobody talks about the companies in america tightening their belts. if we went back to a flat tax, no tax break, no tax shelters, everyone pays 10%, that would help our economy, the american families, and it would let big business pay what they should pay. guest: here is one of the big issues we are dealing with that. people at oil companies are making a lot of money. we are dealing with a major energy crunch right now. people can look at oil companies and say, they have record profits and we have record high prices. the fact is, we are dealing with record high prices in oil. if we could add energy from our own country, we could manage that and it would be different. fluctuations from overseas would not still be occurring, at this point. people also talk about oil companies getting tax breaks. it is that ability to write off their business expenses. it is the same as other companies. people say that they are larger and these small companies, but they are, they are larger businesses. people want to pick on that. what would they do if they pulled that out? th

: hello, america. it is impossible to adequately put in words the amount of destruction and suffering that is going on now in japan. last week's quake was the fifth biggest since they started measuring. and the largest ever in japan. it was almost a 9 on the richter scale. what does that mean? scientists are now saying that is an earthquake that happens once every 1,000 years. the u.s. geological survey says the quake shifted part of japan coastline. ready for this? japan has moved 13 feet closer to the united states. the earth moved ten inches because of this and the tsunami. the earth's axis was tilted slightly and shortened the length of the day by a couple of millionths of a second. part of japan's elevation has dropped do you remember the devastation in haiti do you remember what that looked like and how bad that was? that was horrible. but this quake in japan packed 1,000 times the punch of what hit haiti. you have probably seen the footage over and over again. i sat at my computer with my wife the other night looking at this stuff thinking oh, my gosh. moment that the earthquak
connell-inhofe amendment. america america my -- mr. merkley: my colleague from texas was addressing this amendment and noting her support for it. i would like to address several reasons that y this amendment is bad policy for america. first and foremost, this amendment increases our addiction to foreign oil. it increases oil consumption by 455 million barrels. right now we import about 9.7 million barrels of oil per day. so this amendment is equivalent to six weeks' worth of oil imports. recognize that gas prices are about $3.50 a gallon. the mcconnell-inhofe amendment amounts to a $68 billion price tag for working families to buy gas, to buy gas from oil imported from overseas. and this isn't a tax that in any way supports our economy. in fact, this is a tax that goes out of our economy to purchase energy from overseas. so, from the middle east, from nigeria, from venezuala. that is very profitable to the companies that supply that oil. it's very profitable to the governments far outside of the united states of america. but it certainly hurts the citizens of our nation. it takes our energy dollar
